Maya Diseno Floral - Great, AFFORDABLE Florist in Playa/Cancun Area

Recommended Posts

Congratulations!!  We're getting married at the Moon Palace, and I'm considering Marvin, but I've heard from other brides that Palace Resorts will charge you a fee to your hotel bill if you use outside vendors.  I'm worried that even if we meet him outside the hotel and bring the flowers in undetected, the resort will still see the flowers during the ceremony and celebrations, haha.  How did you get around using him as an outside vendor?

ndvidul,

 

Marvin has been delivering to MP for ages and he reassured me as well that all will be fine.  He meets you or your designated persons in the lobby or at the gate.  Hope this helps

I emailed Marvin, had the time set up and the front desk actually called me at 3pm sharp to say my flowers were here. I sent my husband down to get them and I had 6 pretty large centerpieces and 5 bridesmaid bouquets.  The bell boy actually brought the flowers to my room so I could see them, and then brought them over to the wedding coordinator's office so she could put them out on the table.  When my coordinator asked about my centerpieces in our first meeting when i arrived in Canacun, I acted like I was going to make them myself when the rest of my bridesmaids arrived at the hotel, so I told her from the beginning that I would have them around 3pm the day of the wedding.  There really is no issue at all and Marvin knows what he is doing.

My confidence is rising for using Marvin now, especially since MP employees actually brought the flowers to your room, lol.  Thank you for sharing!

Was $660 the cost for all of your flowers or just your centerpieces?

The name of the florist's company is Maya Diseno Floral and you can email the owner, Marvin, directly. He's extremely responsive and so accommodating. If there's something you want, I can assure you, he'll make it happen. I sent him pics of flowers from a wedding I found online and he recreated the centerpieces for HALF the price that the resort florist charged for the same exact thing.

 

Every color that I wanted, he made sure to incorporate. I asked if could we tie in turquoise to match the teal of my bridesmaids dresses and he wrapped a beautiful, subtle teal shade ribbon around the stems of the bouquets, so it really tied everything together perfectly. And for 11 centerpieces, we paid $660USD vs. what would have been $1,320 with the internal resort florist. He also made a point of stopping by my room to make sure I was happy with everything and to give me a sneak peak at my bridal bouquet. :) LOVE HIM!

 

Here's his site: http://mayadisenofloral.com.mx/

 

And here is Marvin's email address: marvin@mayadisenofloral.com.mx

 

This guy is well worth a look if you want gorgeous tropical flowers without spending an arm and a leg. He threw in the table runners, votive candles, cake flowers and hair flowers for free too. I'm so glad I found his info somewhere on BDW and I thank whoever did that - so I wanted to be sure to spread the word further!!

 

Happy to share photos if anyone wants to see his work.

I would love to see pics of his work! I plan on using him, and am waiting on a response from im. I originally emailed him back in July, and then we touched base again in August again. I emailed him late last week, so it hasn't been long, but just waiting. My weding i sless than two months away, so I hope its not too late! :)

Wow,  Just joined and this was the first link I clicked on!  Love his arrangements and the green toned orchid ones really did something to me.  Am a little in panic mode cause we haven't even started looking and were hoping to get married in Feb/March, but one step at a time... (last minute stay-up-all-night seems to be the future hubby and my specialty!).

Thanks for all the pics, hopefully this was one step ticked off the list!!

Help!

 

How do you gals even start gathering ideas for your flowers?  I'm trying to put together pics to send Marvin of what we want.  But, I feel a bit clueless on this! 

 

I researched what flowers are available in February in the Northern Hemisphere, and I know our colors (below)... but how do you find pics that are "doable" for your season and for Mexico?  Or did you just find pictures you like, and he can change them as he sees fit for the season/region?  

 

BTW - I know five colors is a lot LOL.  Any ideas would be helpful.  The bridesmaid dresses are teal, and their shoes are silver.  I thought the sandy beige and brown bring in the natural colors of the beach (and are also present in our wedding invites), and I found the teal/darkblue/silver combo from a wedding website and loved it.  Any thoughts in general?  And as far as flowers with these colors?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
